The maturation status and activation of mice liver NK cells in E. multilocularis infection. a Representative FACS plots gated on percentage of CD27+CD11b+NK cells in liver NK cells at 2 weeks after infection. b Percentage of mature CD27+CD11b+ in liver NK cells at different time points after infection. c QRT-PCR analysis for mRNA levels of receptor CD69 in whole-liver tissue at various time points after infection and normalized by comparison to GAPDH mRNA. d Percentage of CD69+ NK cells in liver at different time points after infection. Data were shown as mean ± standard error (SEM, 4–5 mice per group), *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001; ****p < 0.0001
